I have mixed feelings about this: I respect the man's bravery, yet jumping off the tower does seem a little foolish. Also, it is apparently not so hard to smuggle a parachute to the Eiffel Tower. Makes you wonder about security.

Preliminary investigations indicated that the man planned to film his jump as part of publicity for a Norwegian clothing brand, police said.

The man, 31, entered the tower on Monday evening with a hidden parachute and a helmet that had a small video camera attached to it, said the official at Paris' police headquarters.

Upon reaching the Eiffel Tower's 115-meter-high (380-foot-high) second deck, the man jumped. Investigators believe his parachute got caught in the tower's structure, causing it to detach from his body.

May he rest in peace. The unspecified sponsor of the jump should feel ashamed.
